Touch screen very light

I have an older Esante model and the solution with holding down the 3 the buttons and then turning on the machine to recalibrate does not work. Please advise a different solution.

When your BabyLock Esante ESi2 is otherwise working fine but the LCD display screen begins to grow darker and you find you just can't read it, the only thing you can do is replace the BabyLock Esante ESi2 LCD screen, or buy a new machine. BabyLock no longer stock this item direct, but there is an affordable replacement available....Check this Link

I have not yet seen babylock release a driver for windows 8 and the BLN. The dealer likely has a computer with an older operating system.

Reset button on Esante ESe2

1. Turn the power on while holding down the [Start/Stop], [Reverse stitch], and [Needle position] buttons.

2. Touch the positions marked with crosses (+) on the touch panel in order from 1 to 5.


• Setting is successful if a single beep sounds when "5" is pressed.

• An error has occurred if two beeps sound when "5" is pressed. Repeat from position 1 again.
3. Turn the power off and then on again. Check that the screen display matches the positions on the touch panel

My esante model ESI-2 has become very stiff while I am sewing. It is difficult to turn the balance wheel. I have cleaned out all of the lint but it still doesn't run smoothly and easily. Is there...

hi, when the balance wheel is difficult to turn, the machine is letting you know there's a problem, it may only be minor but minor problems are easier to fix than big problem & less costly
since it's a baby lock esante I would really suggest that the machine needs to be checked by a repair technican, that can give the machine the check up it needs

Won't work at all-esante ese baby lock

Check that the button used to snip your thread at the end of your seam is not stuck. Mine will sometimes stick and if I just touch it again it will again activate and the red start/stop button will work again.

You might want to try this solution first, although maybe your dealer has already tried it. With your machine off, hold the start/stop button, the reverse button and the needle position button down with one hand. While holding them, turn the machine on. What will come up is a screen to recalibrate your LCD. You won't need the first screen, so press the thread cutting button one time. The next screen changes the brightness level. The reverse button on your machine makes it darker, and the needle position button makes it lighter. I stumbled upon this by accident one day while recalibrating. I'd like to know if this works for you, although by now, maybe you have bought a new screen...

My touch screen doesn't always work. Sometimes I have to touch all around the square and even then, it won't come on. At times, it stops working when I want to change patterns. It seems to work most of the...

Yes, I have a solution for this problem. Your screen needs to be recalibrated and you can do it yourself. Don't you wish they would just tell you this stuff instead of charging you an arm and a leg? Here's what to do: Before turning on the machine, press the start/stop button, the reverse button, and the needle position button all at once with one hand (one finger on each button). Hold them down and turn on the machine. What will come up is a recalibration screen. You will see the numbers 1-5 with a little plus sign beside them. Find a small blunt object (I used the tip of a mechanical pencil with the lead in instead of out) and while holding the start/stop button, touch the plus sign beside 1-5 in numerical order. Then, turn the machine off and on again in the normal way. This should recalibrate the screen. Pass it along, people! This is something no one should have to pay for!
